The Bravehearts have named a 12- player squad to take on Wales and Ireland in the Celtic Cup, with the competition taking place on May 7th at Plas Madoc Leisure Centre in Wrexham.
Head Coach Mark Roughsedge has made three changes to the side that faced Wales in Wrexham in the autumn.
Record cap holder Graeme Stewart returns to the fold having been injured for the 2021 season, and Pete Lauder and Jay Anderson earn recalls.
Ryan Mellon is unavailable for selection due to his Army commitments.
Head Coach Mark Roughsedge said: ‘It has been a real pleasure to see how this group of players and staff are really starting to develop and grow as a team.
‘I have witnessed a marked change in mindset that continues to drive a desire to keep getting better. 
‘The Celtic Cup will give us an indication of just how far we are along our journey towards the World Cup in November.’
